LinkCollector lets you delay opening links until later


LinkCollector is a brand new jailbreak tweak that allows you to collect multiple links, and open them at your leisure all at once. Instead of opening the links that you collect immediately, you can simply defer them.

When you attempt to open a Safari link from another app, you’ll get a banner notification that informs you that a link has been collected. You can tap the banner to open the link immediately, or you can let the banner timeout, and open the link(s) when you visit Safari later.

LinkCollector 2

LinkCollector is a great jailbreak tweak to use when you’re reading an article with a lot of links or if you’re using an app that contains multiple links. Obviously things like Twitter and RSS feed reading apps have tons of links, and are thus primary candidates for such functionality.

Once you’ve collected all of your links, you’ll see a blue bar at the top of the Safari window indicating that you have collected links ready for viewing. There’s even a status bar icon with a counter that shows how many links you’ve amassed. When you tap on the blue bar in Safari, all of the links that you’ve collected will open in their own separate tabs.

LinkCollector prefs

LinkCollecter works for every app by default, but if you’d like to limit the number of apps that it plays nice with, you can do so by means of the tweak’s preference panel in the Settings app.

I really like LinkCollector. I think it’s innovative and can be useful in real world scenarios. It’s available for $1.49 on the BIgBoss repo, and comes with my recommendation.

What do you think about the premise of link collecting in general? Sound off in the comments down below.
